Girlstorm - a weekend of snowkiting just for the women of the winter world
Attention lady riders - there WILL be another Girlstorm in 2009. Stay tuned to this space for dates and information.
The first ever Girlstorm was a great weekend. With Molly Savard helping to teach, mother nature providing lots of new snow and Dakine, Lake Champlain Chocolates, Roxy and Amy's Granola hooking everyone up with sweet goodies a good time was had by all.
We are very psyched to welcome Kate, Dani, Jacqueline, Lia, Gorette, Alice, Annick and Kara to the world of snowkiting. They came from as far as Nova Scotia and all over New England and went from no experience to some great first rides over the weekend. There was a great fun and friendly vibe and we are all looking forward to next year's Girlstorm.
Stormboarding would like to thank all of the girls for coming and our partners for the goodies with an extra shout out to HQ kites for sending us some extra kites to keep everyone powered up.
